St. George's Church

 

Welcome to St George’s at Thriplow.

St George’s is an historic 12th century church which is in regular use today with a small but active congregation. Our congregation covers all age ranges and young families are well represented amongst our members. We offer a welcome to all within our community, and we provide details of our church activities to all newcomers to the village.

We have either two or three services each month, which include Holy Communion, an informal Family Service for all ages, and the occasional Evensong. The church is used for weddings, baptisms and funerals, and concerts, and each Spring we participate in the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend.

St George’s welcomes children and young people to all their services, and we have very strong links with the Thriplow Church of England (Aided) Primary School.

The Benefice youth group ‘Energise’, which includes children from all four villages,  meets in Thriplow village hall.

Thriplow School Chaplaincy

 

Hi my name is Cheryl Titmus and I am your School Chaplain.

 

A bit about myself

I am a Licensed Lay Minister (Reader) within the Benefice of Thriplow, Foxton, Fowlmere, and Shepreth. As part of my role as an LLM I became your school chaplain a little over 18 months ago.

I am also a school governor and have sat on the full governing body for nearly six years now and have enjoyed the various roles I have taken on during that period.

I am married to Graham, also an LLM, and we have two grown up children - Ben and Lydia who are both married. I also have a grandson, Joseph, who is almost 2 years old.

I work with children and families in a school setting and in a Children’s Centre. I have been going into schools in various capacities for about 30 years now so I am quite familiar with what happens in a school context although this is the first time I have been fortunate enough to work in a church school.

What will I be doing?

Part of my role will be to help the children to discover and explore more about the Christian faith - to question, to search and deepen their faith and to be involved in leading worship in school. I am already involved in assemblies and in the weekly Stepping Stones Club that meets Wednesday lunchtimes, thinking about faith – reflecting on things outside the box - and what it means to be a Christian. I have also been helping in the Holy Communion services twice a term.

I will be offering pastoral support to the whole school community, which includes parents/carers and their families. So if you feel you would like to meet me or chat about something (other than education at the school) please phone or email the office, for an appointment to meet up.

I look forward to meeting you.

With Gods love

Cheryl
